ABOUT JUSTSEEDS:::


Justseeds Artists’ Cooperative is a decentralized network of 26 artists committed to making print and design work that reflects a radical social and political stance. With members in the U.S., Canada, and Mexico, Justseeds operates both as a unified collaboration of similarly-minded printmakers and as a loose collection of individuals with unique viewpoints and working methods. We believe in the transformative power of personal expression in concert with collective action.

Founded in 1998, and originally the graphics distribution project of Josh MacPhee, Justseeds made the transformation into a worker-owned cooperative in 2007 – the original network being largely in place through past collaborations. Having outgrown our space in a residential basement in Portland, Oregon, in May of 2010 we transported our distribution center to our new and larger home in Pittsburgh, PA. We operate an online store and wholesale distro, an active, multi-voice blog detailing current art and resistance projects around the world, and a small gallery space in our Pittsburgh office which highlights member work.

The Pittsburgh Art Blog

pittsburgh galleries is reborn anew as The Pittsburgh Art Blog. the blog features selected pittsburgh artists and upcoming exhibits with photos from the artists and galleries. since the major press outlets do not go beyond a directory listing of exhibits, blogs are needed to promote pittsburgh artists and their work. the blog also calls attention to the inferiority complex of pittsburgh art and how it's perpetuated by the major players in town. Started on August 20, 2007.pittsburgh area galleries and art venues are listed at the sister site www.PghGalleries.com.the blog and website are volunteer projects from fine art photographer and pittsburgh art advocate rick byerly, www.RickByerly.com.
